Hello, are these buttons World War I USMC?  They are marked Waterbury Button Co. Conn.

I think USMC buttons only have the eagle and anchor.   Here is an example of a WWII dress blues uniform.  The buttons dont have a globe but the collar insignia does.

The backmark is very typical of WW2 issued enlisted tunics.
